The lead paint work is going along well. The buildings are being treated and the ground is being covered by shade cloth so that the albatrosses won't nest in those areas with the most lead paint. That should save a lot of chicks from dying of lead poisoning.
We also had a retirement party last night for Sak Phosri. He has worked on Midway for almost 29 years. We've never heard of anyone else being here for that long anytime in Midway's history. We'll lose a lot of island knowledge when he leaves.
